Thermal Imaging

Skip the guess work. We can pinpoint the problem in minutes.


Thermal Imaging

Thermal imaging enables us to see an environment from a completely different perspective. Infrared technology paints a picture that our eyes can’t see alone.

Often the camera is capable of discovering manipulated areas of the environment and we can identify significant locations of action.

Using Infrared technology can detect thermal patterns caused by pests such as termites, rodents, and wildlife under proper conditions.

Understanding Thermal or Infrared Energy:

Thermal or infrared energy is light that is not visible because its wavelength is too long for the human eye to detect. It’s the part we perceive as heat of the electromagnetic spectrum.

In contrast to visible light in the infrared world, everything above absolute zero temperature emits heat. Even very cold objects emit infrared energy, such as ice cubes. The higher the temperature of the object, the higher the emitted IR radiation.

Termite Infestations

Rodent Infestations


Give your home the best treatment.

Early detection is now available to our customers, and if you add the benefit of detection using thermal imaging, your property will have another layer of protection.

Thermal Image Scans for Pest Evidence:

Rodent & wildlife activity in attics and crawl spaces — Rodent & squirrel nesting — Termite colonies behind walls or floors — Termite structural damage — Pest infestations such as bee & wasp nests hidden in wall cavities — As well as pest entry points.


Termites attacking houses are almost exclusively subterranean (underground) species that have to maintain very specific environmental requirements.

When termites enter a dwelling, the galleries they inhabit are quickly humidified and the temperature actively regulated.

They are truly among the worst nightmare of a homeowner, so discovering termites long before they become visually apparent can potentially save thousands of dollars to homeowners.

The advantages of thermal technology are apparent.

By implementing this technology, a circumstance that might otherwise be puzzling is made clear and gives us the advantage when protecting your home.

For more information on pest evidence and more through infrared pest detection, contact our pest control team at Potts Pest Control.


In southeastern U.S. regions, cooler months from September through October common insects from that region migrate into heated structures suitable for their survival.

The environment within a structure must have all the essential elements for their colony such as food, water, and heat.  Floor, wall and ceiling voids make perfect sanctuaries.

Thermal imaging detects cold and heat signatures that our trained technicians translate as living or non-living targets. Scanning your home or office for hidden pests takes just a few minutes.

More Info

Our technicians have a wealth of knowledge in the field of construction and pest biology. This makes them well equipped for rodent exclusion (also referred to as rat  proofing) and removal of mice.


Possible infestation of pests as revealed by loss of energy through shelter tubes left by boring wood-destroying insects as well as animals such as snakes, bats, rats, mice, squirrels, raccoons, opossums, etc.

Thermal imaging can be a powerful tool for the pest control expert to identify not only the pest itself, but also possible points of entry.

Please note that an Infrared camera is not a magic tool.

Thermal imaging can only detect surface temperatures directly. ( It is not an x-ray scanner and can not see through walls)

More Info

Thermal image limitations

– Images can be difficult to interpret accurately if they are based on objects with erratic temperatures

– Different emissivities and reflections from other surfaces may hinder accurate temperature measurements.

– Work site conditions can have a significant effect on thermal imaging (if it has just rained, temperatures in the early morning vs. afternoon, very cold or hot environments, etc.).
